The Watch What Happens Live host always maintained a soft spot for the controversial actress after working together for almost a decade.

"She’s fun to watch," Cohen said in a 2019 interview. "She’s funny and she makes fun of herself. She understands her place in the world, and she’s very secure with herself. I just think she’s entertaining."

The mom-of-two's final year on the series was a difficult one due to drama from parting ways with her longtime publicist, being booed by thousands of fans at BravoCon and losing her beloved mother, Lois Rinna.

"It's hard," the 59-year-old emotionally confessed when Cohen asked how she's been during the Season 12 reunion. "It's really hard to come into a show like this, and maybe would've been better if I had taken the time off."

Los Angeles Times conducted the 2019 interview with Cohen.
